National Day of Mourning
Northside Friends Meeting in Chicago IL has called for a day of mourning on May 25, 2020 to acknowledge the grief and loss caused by the pandemic thus far.
They also invite us to join them in the visible action at sundown wherever you are, of stepping outside and lighting a candle and holding a moment of silence for what we have lost together.
Friends are encouraged to join Friends and others around the world in this simple action.

Pub Theology with the Quakers
February 5th, 2020
Pub Theology is a group devoted to interreligious dialogue and discussions on current affairs. Hosted each week by Pastor Gavin Rogers (Travis Park United Methodist Church — in the white & stripe jacket above) and Bekah McNeel (Christianity Today), it meets every Wednesday from 7-9 at the Friendly Spot Ice House from 7 – 9pm.
On February 5th, Gavin invited members of Friends Meeting to come talk about our tradition, our practices, and our ways of being in the world. Seventeen of us came for a 2-hour discussion with about 40 others from various religious and non-religious traditions. It was a great discussion.
